A Heritage Network for Strathard

As a local development trust, Strathard Community Trust has a central role to play in the delivery of some of the many priorities identified by our residents during the Community Action Plan process and outlined in the newly launched plan for Strathard (2017-2022). Some of these priorities centre on heritage and the desire to use the area’s diverse natural and cultural heritage to benefit the local community. Following a well attended open meeting organised by The Community Partnership (held in Aberfoyle on March 28th 2017) to discuss the role of heritage in Strathard, a number of participants agreed to form a loose ‘Heritage Network’. This would support groups, businesses and organisations who wish to become more engaged in heritage across Strathard.

Over the next 2-3 years the network aims to work with groups and organisations across the area and the wider National Park, to achieve a vision of Strathard which is engaged in its heritage, proud of its heritage and enriched through its heritage. Through this Heritage Network a small working-group comprising James Kennedy, Katinka Dalglish, Alison Boa and Richard Muir has been formed. With the support of The Community Partnership the aim is to bring this vision to fruition.
